Phytoplankton primary production, biomass, species composition and sedimentation of organic matter (using a moored and a free drifting sediment trap) were measured in eastern Bransfield Strait during spring 1983. Biomass and primary production increased from low levels in late November (1 mgChla m-3 and 400 mgC m-2 d-1) to bloom levels by the end of December (5 mgChla m-3 and 1000 mgC m-2 d-1). The moored trap was deployed at 323 m depth for 22.5 days, and collected 2968 mgC and 67.6 mg… CONTINUE READING
